Description: Tapas (small plates) restaurant featuring dishes from various regions of Spain, South America and the Caribbean, including Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Mexico, Cuba, and more. We have live Latin music Wednesday - Sunday, including Salsa, Merengue, Samba and other Brazilian styles, and Flamenco during Sunday brunch. The music is also piped outside to our 3,600 square foot bricked patio--the largest in downtown Houston--which features thick stalk bamboo and lush greenery. The historic clock tower sits right outside our patio fence. It's a cool vibe.

“Bike Ride Brunch”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

My girlfriends and I stopped here for brunch during Sunday Streets. The Burger was probably the best Burger I've had in Houston. Service was delightful as was the live music!

Thanks so much for the kind words! I too am a burger fanatic and couldn't agree more with your comment. Please come see us soon!

Also we are starting our "Pig and Paella" the last Sunday of every month. We whole roast a pig and do a huge pan of the best paella you have ever had. It includes salads, sides and Chef's dessert selection.

Come check it out!

“Delicious brunch”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Great casual environment right across from our hotel. We had carafes of mimosas, a few tapas - loved the Patatas Batangas - and everyone loved their meal. Very relaxed, took our time and no one was in a hurry. Perfect for a Sunday morning brunch!

“Great Food Concept”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

The Tapas food concept is nicely executed and made for interesting dining experience. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio on a beautiful sunny Houston day. The service, however, was lacking. My friend talked to the owners and I'm sure it will improve.

“A perfect rehearsal”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The wait staff was outstanding to cater to this large event. The appetizers were tasteful and the main course was not far from it. Special drinks for the rehearsal dinner were strangely satisfying. You can always go next door to the charity bar to finish the night!
